If you are missing shingles on your roof from the latest windstorm, it’s time to take a look at your roof! Should you replace the missing shingles, or should you call in a professional to take care of it? At Kanga Roof, we take roofing concerns seriously! We recommend homeowners have their roof inspected on a regular basis. There are potential problems you can catch just by taking a few minutes to inspect your roof. Making minor repairs to your roof may not be convenient, but it can limit the amount of damage that could occur due to weather.
A roof is designed to protect your home, your family, and your valuables. Over time, the roof will begin to wear out, and needs to be replaced. The older a roof becomes, the more vulnerable a roof starts to become. Shingles can start pulling up from the roof, and others can start flying off in a windstorm. We examine all areas of the roof including the metal flashings to find any areas of concern and let our customers know what to do.
Here is our easy to use roof inspection checklist for homeowners to follow annually.
- Look for signs of blistered, curled or split shingles
- Loose or missing shingles
- Nails that are exposed or loose
- Nails that look like they have popped up from their original installation
- Broken and loose shingles at the rides and hip lines
- Missing caulk around the seal flashing
